Everyone at the Fringe is inventive, but one group is very much associated with that in my mind, Les Enfant Terribles. Formed in 2002 by James Seager and Oliver Lansley, they have brought many shows to the Fringe over the years, from psychological World War One horror, through Piratosaurs, to 2016’s vaudevillans;a classic murder caper mixed with a …

Every organization needs a hero. Now, I'm not going to disclose the companies, but right now we're working with three different companies where each organization is lucky enough to have a hero. Now, a hero is somebody that is willing to speak up, talk to upper level management, represent the views of the people. Now, with that being said, I even cr…
 
The world of H P Lovecraft is one that many people have explored, both the horror of the writing and the horror of the man. In 2015 Shedload Theatre looked at the former, in an inventive show called The Statement Of Randolph Carter. The big moment in the show is the Foley work. The show is presented as a radio play, and that means lots of sound eff…
 
Sofie Hagen started their stand-up career in their home country of Denmark, before quickly moving to London to further their career. 2015 brought the debut show to Edinburgh. Bubblewrap examined issues of depression and mental health, difficult teenage years, and attacking the beauty industry, all with just a dash of Westlie and a perfectly cringe …
 
The Fringe is not just a recruiting vehicle for Live at the Apollo, there’s more to comedy, more to the Fringe, than that. You can have theatrical performances that bring the art of clowning and farce to the stage alongside pathos and examination of the human condition. In 2014, Little Soldier Productions brought its first production to the Fringe,…
 
Recently, I've talked to two different companies. One, a financial services firm, and another one in the manufacturing sector. Both were telling me of potential pending layoffs. Change is coming.

I’ve talked before about the podcast archive giving us a window into the past when the recognisable names of today were still figuring their artistic life out.

At Progress Coaching, we do not get involved in interviewing work or interviewing skills or anything like that. The one thing I would share with all of you more than anything is that when we're hiring people, I think we have to change what we do. I think we have to really, really get people to be transparent with the themselves. I hear all too ofte…
 
The process is flawed! We interview and people provide answers to get the job. They (the applicants) never once say "Just so you know my crappy attitude shows up at 90 days and I start undermining people. At 6 months I lose my motivation and will want more money so please get prepared. Last, do not bother me with extra work because the Quite Quitti…
 
This week we’re back to 2012 once more, as former Perrier nominee Sarah Kendall returned to the Fringe after a five-year absence. “Get Up, Stand Up” (or is it “Get Up, Stand-Up”, how delightfully interpretive) takes on a more storytelling approach than a bang-bang-jokes routine, and Kendall’s acting chops wer brought to the fore in an hour of pitch…
 
Corporate America needs to reestablish the great employee. Corporate America to a certain extent cannot continue to appease and placate employees. Now let me explain. 41% of employees today are actually leaving due to a lack of career development. Over 80 to 85% of employees, lack self-awareness. Today's talent shortage is leading companies to crea…

Quiet Quitting is not a new concept. Maybe it's a different name and a different label yet, we've had quiet quitting for decades. We need to get back to the fundamentals of employment. If you are hired to do a job, you should be hired to do that job to the best of your ability. There is not a job description in the world that encourages people to n…
 
Coaching is as easy as A, B, C, D. There is awareness. The power of awareness when leaders become aware of how they're perceived and they can develop awareness in others.

I have said for almost 30 years that coaching is a two step process. First, you want people to look in the mirror. #2, you want people to take action on #1 yet very few people do number one arbitrarily on their own.
